Meridian Health is proud to be taking part in a very special day nationwide. It is #GivingTuesday.

Today is the day for the big event, and it's all about giving back . Today, Meridian Health Affiliated Foundations are asking for your help. They want you to spread the word and encourage charitable giving close to home on this widespread day of philanthropy.

We were glad to have Mollie Giamanco, a Bayshore Community Hospital trustee and a member of the K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital Giving Committee join us this morning to talk about the initiative.

To get all the information on #GivingTuesday, you can visit the Meridian Health website. There, you will be invited to click on links that will give you details on how you can help. Also, feel free to share those links with your friends.
